The Tatiana Proskouriakoff Award Lecture and Reception

6:00 PM Thursday, October 3, 2013 at the Geological Lecture Hall (24 Oxford St., Cambridge). A reception will follow at the Peabody Museum (11 Divinity Avenue).

The Classic Maya made a critical distinction between the ordinary daily movement of humans and sacred, formal movement. Stephen D. Houston will examine a rich inventory of glyphic references, imagery, and formal routes to show how linear movement formed the essence of sacred and marked motion among the Maya.

Stephen D. Houston is the Dupee Family Professor of Social Science and Professor of Anthropology and Archaeology at Brown University.

Presented by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology at Harvard University
